British Academy Writing Workshops 2019


The British Academy is inviting proposals to develop one or more training and research workshops in the Global South aimed at bringing together journal editors, UK-based scholars and early career researchers in the Global South to support the:

  • Development of promising academics; and
  • Promote the uptake of research emanating from the Global South in journals and further intellectual scholarly interaction between researchers in the UK and those based in the Global South.

The intention is to cultivate professional networks and mentorship and provide access for early career researchers in the Global South to the academic requirements of journals, including international journals, and equip them with the necessary knowledge to publish in these journals. This will support the development of their academic careers and promote the visibility of their research in international publications. It is expected that journal editors and UK-based scholars will work intensively to support workshop participants to produce papers in preparation for publication.

The lead applicant must be based at a UK university or eligible research institute, and be of postdoctoral or above status (or have equivalent research experience). The lead applicant must either be in a permanent position at the institution or have a fixed-term position for the duration of the award.

Each application must have at least one co-applicant from an institution in the Global South.

All proposed workshops must take place in ODA eligible countries.

The value of the award is set at a maximum of £20,000.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 16 January 2019.
